The acquisition will be made for a sum of INR 70 crore.

The acquired 2,000-million tonnes per annum (MTPA) tube manufacturing unit makes galvanised iron (GI) and pre-galvanised (GP) pipes that are high margin and value-added product segments for the acquirer, said APL Apollo in a statement, as reported by the Indian daily news, VC Circle.
